Indie game development studio Quarant Inc. has released the chaotic gardening puzzle-game Grow Big (or Go Home) on Steam.

While I’m not against having plants at home, I don’t trust myself enough to fully take care of them. I’m not even sure if I can keep a cactus alive. Gardening is tough! Especially if you have more than one plant to look after. In my opinion, the chaos accompanying gardening (for those who don’t have a Green Thumb) has been displayed quite well in Grow Big (or Go Home).

According to the press release we got, Grow Big (or Go Home) is a 2D pixel-art indoor gardening simulator. The main character is named Bruce. He’s described as the “world’s most talented indoor gardner”. His (and your) gardening and puzzle-solving skills will be put to the test through 15+ fast-paced levels.   

As Bruce, you will travel to different locations and eras. Players will have to do their best to water, light, and tend to a variety of plants.

There’s so much happening in the trailer! I can’t!

We wanted to provide players with some hectic fun – easy enough to get into but challenging to master,” said Killian Mangan, Team/Creative Lead at Quarant Inc. “We are most proud of our entirely original music and our visually diverse pixel-art style.”

The Key Features include:

  • 15 fast-paced levels set in unique locations spread across time and space.
  • A procedurally-generated, replayable level set in Hell. (Ah yes, I always wanted to grow a plant in Hell. Ha!)
  • Lovable characters such as protagonist gardening extraordinaire Bruce, his mischievous cat Apollo, and tiny alien Sir Bob.
  • An innovative tutorial system that is integrated into the level select and game.
  • Original music themed to the locations that the player visits.
  • Clear yet challenging gameplay mechanics using common household objects in interesting ways.
  • Plenty of other exciting features coming soon including a “hard mode”.

You can go ahead and buy Grow Big (or Go Home) right now on Steam. Due to a special launch day promotion, the title is 37% off. That means you can get it for $3.14 USD instead of $4.99 (until December 25, 2020). Support indie games and have fun!

As for Quarant Inc., it’s a Europe-based indie game dev studio. The devs are working on a terror game Alban: Dread by Darkness, set in an alternate history of Scotland where fire doesn’t exist.

Are you into gardening? Do you think you can help Bruce?
